James Brock, accused of fatally shooting the mother of his two children and her friend, called Tyesha McNair hours before she was found dead on her living room floor and thanked her for everything she had done.
Brock, 24, also called McNair about three hours after her death, leaving her a message about dropping off their children.
Brock faces murder charges in the deaths of McNair and Terence Clark, both 21. McNair and Clark were found dead Oct. 13, 2009, on Crystal Court. Prosecutors allege Brock used a key to McNair’s apartment, which was in his mother’s name, and shot the pair multiple times.
Brock denied that he killed McNair in a letter written to her mother and called the shooting a robbery gone bad.

Annastasia Williams, a childhood friend of McNair’s from Topeka, Kan., listened to several voice mail messages on McNair’s cell phone shortly after her death. After hearing Brock’s voice on most of them, she called police.
In a 11:03 p.m. Oct. 12, 2009, message, Brock talks about food, — greens, chicken, pork chops and hot sauce.
“Thank you for everything — for everything,” Brock says.
Calls to 911 about the shooting began around 3:50 a.m. Oct. 13, 2009. At 6:53 a.m. that morning, Brock called again, saying he wanted to know when he should drop off their children.
